Apart from the name, fresh design and new range of flavours, it’s identical. VELO is made the same way, it contains the same high-quality ingredients and it comes from the same producer.
VELO nicotine puches are intended to be used orally and should not be swallowed or digested.
If swallowed or digested you should consult a medical professional.
VELO is an oral nicotine product which contains no tobacco. velo pouches are made from high-quality ingredients, including water, plant-based materials, flavouring, sweeteners and pharmaceutical grade nicotine, all prepacked in a small pouch. It comes in a variety of flavours and nicotine strengths for adult smokers and nicotine users who are looking for an alternative and convenient way to consume nicotine on-the-go.
Cigarettes wreak havoc on the body, damaging the user practically from head to toe. The harms have been proven beyond doubt. But there is scant evidence pointing to similar health effects from vaping—or any health problems, for that matter, unless you count nicotine dependence. But nicotine isn’t directly responsible for any of the terrible harms of smoking.
Public Health England has been unequivocal in its findings: the respected British agency says vaping is at least 95 percent safer than smoking. PHE researchers understand that studying the dangers of vaping alone is only half of the subject, since vaping exists primarily as an alternative to smoking. The potential risks of vaping are low, and they must be compared to the proven risks of smoking.
Smoking cigarettes causes well-known harm to the lungs. Long-term inhalation of burning tobacco can lead to lung and esophageal cancer, and to a variety of deadly lung conditions like emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Cigarette smoke attacks the lungs in several ways. It contains thousands of chemicals, more than 70 of which are known carcinogens. It also contains particulate matter—fine bits of burned tobacco, tobacco residue and paper—that get lodged deep in the lungs, where it gets buried in the tissue and can lead to cancer and COPD.
But what about vaping? Vaping doesn’t produce known carcinogens in quantities large enough to be considered real risks, and it doesn’t contain solid particles like smoke.
In fact, the things that are most dangerous in burning tobacco are largely absent from vaping. Since there is no combustion in vaping, there is also no tar or carbon monoxide—two of the major dangers of smoking. Vaping uses heat from a metal coil to turn e-liquid into an inhalable aerosol. It looks like smoke, but it isn’t. That said, vaping is not without some potential risks to lung health.
There is some concern over the ingredients in e-liquid: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, and flavorings. There is no serious human research on the effects of inhaling PG or VG daily for many years, although animal studies of PG inhalation haven’t raised any red flags. PG has been found to cause minor irritation of the airways, but this isn’t concerning in itself.
E-liquid flavorings are a possible source of danger that hasn’t been well-studied. Most flavorings are a mixture of many chemical compounds, and it’s likely that some are worse for lung health than others. Until recently, these flavorings were used strictly in products that were eaten, not inhaled. Toxicology studies focused on showing that the flavorings are safe for consumption. This is an area where the science on vaping needs to catch up.
Twist it: Twist the lid to open your VELO.
Tuck it: Take a pouch and tuck it between your upper lip and your gum.
Feel it: You’ll feel a slight tingling sensation at the beginning – it is just the nicotine being released. You’ll get used to this feeling and it will start to fade over time.
Enjoy it: You can keep your VELO under your lip for up to 30 minutes. Nicotine pouches are designed to be discreet, so you can use them anywhere, anytime.
Every discussion of the health risks of vaping should begin with a comparison to cigarette smoking. Vapes are designed to be reduced-harm alternatives to cigarettes, and it’s important to weigh vaping versus smoking because the vast majority of vapers are smokers or ex-smokers.
A paper by 15 former presidents of the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco concluded that long-term smokers are being misled about the relative risks of vaping and smoking.
“We believe the potential lifesaving benefits of e-cigarettes for adult smokers deserve attention equal to the risks to youths,” the scientists wrote. “Millions of middle-aged and older smokers are at high risk of near-future disease and death. Quitting reduces risk.”
“While evidence suggests that vaping is currently increasing smoking cessation,” they added, “the impact could be much larger if the public health community paid serious attention to vaping’s potential to help adult smokers, smokers received accurate information about the relative risks of vaping and smoking, and policies were designed with the potential effects on smokers in mind. That is not happening.”
